Everyday there’s plenty of stories on the internet and television about what our governments doing or not doing for its people and who’s to blame. These days, its common for people to blame their personal inadequacies on the place they choose to live and for that matter on other people. I love my country, but sadly…Americans have an “Entitlement issue”. I hear it everyday….The blame game. But, rarely do you hear: what can I do as an individual to make a difference and when and where do I begin?
It wasn’t until I lost a very dear friend, one that taught me a lot about life, did I remember something he’d told me before heading to Costa Rica last year: “It’s not where you are that matters, it’s what you’re doing that does”. And, I’ve learned it’s the people who willingly service others that truly make a difference in the world.
Everyday, I smile at the 100-year-old briefcase my deceased friend gave me last year, a reminder that I’m grateful for what I do have, not for what I don’t and that it all starts from within.
God Bless America
